Full description:

Beautiful 12th Century priory which has been lovingly restored by the current owners, who have owned the priory since 1953, with plenty of living space for the family and paying guests. Ideally located halfway between Le Mans and Tours in the heart of the Loire Valley, the business provides a comfortable supplementary income for the current owners (the rental season could easily be expanded if required). With it's private walled park, lavoir, river, mill, numerous outbuildings and swimming pool - all in the heart of the village - this splendid home has much to offer.

Built by the monks in the 12th Century and inhabited by them until the 17th Century, the architectural periodic changes, both inside and out, are visible and intriguing. The second tower, the vertical splitting of the 1st floor to provide a 2nd floor with additional bedrooms were all carried out by the monks. The painted wall in the upper rooms dates back to the Monks time at the Priory.

The current owners family redecorated and improved where necessary whilst keeping the "soul" of this impressive historic building intact. The vaulted tuffeau stone guest lounge, the enormous salon (with it's massive oak beams), dining hall and fitted kitchen, hallway and twin stairs create the layout of the ground floor with leaded light windows with internal and external period shutters, all work in offering a relaxing and welcoming environment. The first floor has 4 en-suite guest bedrooms which all enjoy park views, character beams and tiled floors. The owners twin bedroom and private bathroom are access by the "newer" tower. The 2nd floor holds a games room (with the original "Boat" beam work exposed), 4 further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Various outbuildings including:
- Double garage
- Workshops
- Storeroom
- 2nd house (renovation to be completed)
- Swimming pool
-"Vivier" (fish basins)
- Private lavoir on the mill reach
- Large piece of land: accessed via a private bridge with direct river & reach access
- Great for fishing

Located in the heart of a village and near the market town of Chateau-du-Loir with great communication links to Le Mans, Tours and further afield to Paris, London, etc.

A truly charming home steeped in character and history offering space for the family and paying guests (if needed).
